MTA TBTA RFK Triborough Bridge


Robert F. Kennedy (Triborough) Bridge

PACOTECH™, as a prime consultant, provided the Owner’s Estimate for the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, formerly known as the Triborough Bridge, for the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority, part of MTA Bridges and Tunnels.

The Triborough Bridge, which opened in 1936, actually consists of three bridges, a viaduct, and 14 miles of approach roads connecting Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx. The Manhattan branch is the Harlem River Lift Bridge, which links Harlem River Drive, the FDR Drive, and 125th Street. The Bronx Crossing leads motorists to points north via the Bruckner and Deegan expressways and, more locally, to the neighborhoods of the South Bronx and the Port Morris Industrial Area. The longest span of the Triborough Bridge, the East River Suspension Bridge to Queens, connects with the Grand Central Parkway and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and to Astoria. The bridge’s three branches meet on Randall’s and Wards Islands, where an interchange and two toll plazas sort out traffic flowing in 12 directions and provide access to the islands.
